don't know what his management experience is regarding the pentagon, little if any. so i think it's an incredibly controversial choice. and it looks like the second term of barack obama is going to be an in-your-face term. >> well, senator hagel is a straight talker from the midwest. he'll give you an unvarnished opinion, and very outspoken. but he has stated his unequivocal total support for israel, saying critics have completely distorted his record. graham predicted other republicans would have a hard time with hagel's nomination. and it just makes you wonder what is really behind all this. senator graham complained that hagel had cut ties with the republican party. but obviously president obama isn't under any requirement to nominate anybody from any party, especially the republicans in the first place. maybe republicans don't like the fact that hagel won't be so eager to get us into another confrontation overseas. here is more from the president. >> he understands that sending young americans to fight and bleed in the dirt and mud, that's something we only do when it's absolu
the pentagon absorb a 10% cut? i suppose it could absorb a cut but the question is, we can not go into default while we're debating these things. you have to increase the debt ceiling and keep the debate going and look to continue to cut spending. jon: we'll have you back another time to talk more about this. you obviously put a lot of thought into it. former congressman dennis kucinich. >> thank you. jenna: speaking after the pentagon, we talked a let about the planned troop withdrawal in afghanistan. now there is word the united states may take out all the troops leaving no american soldiers there. what is behind the so-called zero option? we go in depth next. jon: a fox news alert now. new details emerging on that commuter ferry crash in new york city. rick is live at the breaking news desk for us. >> we're tracking this from down in the newsroom because the details are changing quickly, jon. as you say a commuter ferry bringing people from new jersey along the east river to lower manhattan. we're told that's when they had what is called a hard landing. the ferry captain trying to dock righ
the pentagon. the reason you don't have women in three and four-star ranks because they have career plans that don't usually require or would involve 30 years of service. it makes it pretty hard to have a family life and that's why a lot of women who might be qualified to be a three and four-star general or admiral choose not to go on that career path. now, you don't want to go with a trickle-up kind of thing where you force -- >> couldn't you say the same thing about men, because they have children, too, and responsibilities to their families? >> yes, they do, but again, i'm looking at the empirical evidence. women make different career choices so they are promoted at rates equal to or faster than men. this goes back decades. it's not changed. >> but the women entering the military are not making different career choices. they're entering the military. >> if you want to have a first female chairman of the joint chiefs, that is not a good enough reason, but if say general odierno wanted to give up his seat to a female general for the sake of diversity, he could do that right now. but why

"outfront" tonight, charles blow and former pentagon official, rosa brooks. charles, let me start on this first hilda solis resigning. there's always a lot of turnover. there's one fewer woman in the cabinet. was very interesting that the white house then announced that a woman, an african-american and an asian were staying. so clearly this conversation is is being registered there. >> absolutely. i think that you would like to see as much diversity as possible. gender diversity, racial diversity, whatever else kind of diversity, in any cabinet, this one included. that said though, i think that you know, it's important to understand the entire context of what "the new york times" said in that story. one thing they said was that 46% of obama's appointees have been women and that's a very important issue. half of the people who work in the white house have been women. and that you know, he has had two big appointments, you know, the biggest thing a president can do is to nominate a supreme court justice. obama's had two shots. >> fair point. >> both have been

not want to rush into warfare as a first resort sitting there in charge of the pentagon. >> right. mike, on a slightly broader scale, are you at all concerned that this president's rightful desire to get our troops out of these entrenched and intractable conflicts, that this may point to a less vigorous role for the united states in terms of international affairs? >> you know, it's one of the big questions before us, martin, and i am struck that the syrian civil war, where i think there are no good answers and i'm not a big interventionist myself, it may require a little more american and international role than we've been willing to countenance so far for the very reason you mentioned but i'm hopeful president obama is actually going to be pretty careful on his subsequent afghanistan decisions as i think you mentioned. today's press conference did not promise any particular rapid drawdown path. yes, we're hearing a general sense of war weariness. yes, the president is going to find rhetoric that says we're gradually getting out, but i think he will probably still keep several thousand

are supportive of israel. i don't know what his management experience is regarding the pentagon. little, if any. so i think it's an incredibly controversial choice and it looks like the second term of barack obama will be an in-your-face term. >> so what are some of the issues? start with israel. as you heard, a number of his opponents, especially on the republican or conservative side think chuck hagel is not a friend of israel and point to his position on iran sanctions. they say because of his position that iran sanctions essentially aren't effective, that that is another point against him. also, from the liberal side, comments about a dozen, maybe 14 years ago, that chuck hagel made about a candidate for an ambassadorial position, where he called him openly and aggressively gay. now, chuck hagel has since apologized for that, but that also raises some haggles among some people on the more liberal side. not going to be a friendly reception up in the senate, however, the white house obviously thinks they can pull it off. >> an interesting confirmation hearing, that's for sure. >> let's talk a
concerns some, even over at the pentagon defense secretary panetta saying that that would be a bad idea, but what most likely will be is a few thousand troops on the ground and certainly this is driven by pressure on the president to whether it's political on financial pressure to aggressively draw down troops underground in afghanistan. no doubt that will be part of the discussion today and also as our pentagon folks have been reporting president karzai will be coming to these meetings with a wish list. he needs helicopters. he wants border security surveillance equipment. he wants drones as well for surveillance purposes and these are things they're telling us not to expect any major break-through during the meetings. they'll have a bilateral meeting and a working lunch and then there will be a joint press conference. >> dan lothian reporting live from the white house, of course we'll bring you president obama and hamid karzai's live news conference. wolf blitzer will anchor special cover annuage at 1:00 p.m. east time. >>> better news this morning about the flu. cnn's elizabeth cohen
this council of governors made up by folks at the pentagon, and it is hard to overstate how important our national guards are in each of our states, certainly from the perspective of helping us in times of emergency, but the other thing, and this is really what we want to weigh in on, is making it clear how cost- effective the national guard is as part of our overall national defense package. it is absolutely remarkable. i had the opportunity last year to travel to with the anniston. we happen to have been flown from kuwait -- afghanistan. we happen to be flown from kuwait from the air guard, and these hometown heroes, they will step in, they are extraordinarily well-trained, and they will step in for six months, nine months, and for making that -- to make that happen is incredibly cost- effective. we have a responsibility to the policy-making decisions of the national defence is up to the president and the federal government, but when we have something available to us, specifically the national guard, which is trained extraordinarily well to talk-dutch standards and is also so -- top-not
on my show, colonel ellen herring, one of two women suing the pentagon for discrimination saying all the jobs should be open to everyone, men, women, the standards shouldn't be lowered, it should be one single standard. how can you help make that happen? >> well first of all, april makes ten years for me serving in the army national guard. we have women who have been serving in combat roles for a long time whether it has been under a combat title or not. if we look back to the civil war, we had women who were disguising themselves as men, so they could serve. we have in hawaii two brigades who have females who are serving in infantry units, and i think there is so much room for progress and we just need to make the connection from reality of the roles that women are already playing in our military and perception, where people don't have as close an understanding of the great contributions and sacrifices that women have been making for our country for a very long time. >> okay. >> that's what i'm excited about. i'm able to bring my own firsthand experience, my own deployments to the f
